John Nolen (1869-1937) was a pioneer in the development of professional town and city planning in the United States. Nolen's comprehensive approach merged the social, economic, and physical aspects of planning while emphasizing, in the author's words, "versatility, special knowledge, and cooperation." Between 1905 and 1937, Nolen's firm, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, completed more than 350 commissions throughout the United States. Among the best known of these is Mariemont, Ohio, whose development Nolen directed from the ground up. Rare and long out of print, New Towns for Old (1927) is still of great interest to planners and urban historians. The well-illustrated study contains an overview of the development of American urbanism and a concise discussion of Nolen's ideas for the improvement of towns and cities. Individual chapters examine a variety of towns planned by Nolen including Mariemont, Ohio; Kingsport, Tennessee; and Kistler, Pennsylvania, as well as the new suburbs of Union Park Gardens in Wilmington, Delaware, and Myers Park in Charlotte, North Carolina. The re-planned towns of Cohasset and Walpole, Massachusetts, are also featured. The forward-looking final chapter includes material on Venice, Florida, one of Nolen's most ambitious projects. The new edition of New Towns for Old contains additional plans and illustrations, a new index, and a new introductory essay by Charles D. Warren, which presents biographical and historical context that illuminates the diverse, productive career of this nationally significant practitioner. Perhaps most significantly, it features Nolen's project list, which has never before been published.Published in association with Library of American Landscape History: http://lalh.org/
  • Read the introduction by Warran. It has better history than the book that was not written by John Nolan but by a friend of his name- Sylvester Baxter. The long introduction tells you what happened:

    Nolan was asked to draw up a city plan for Venice Fl. by Dr Albee, who financed it. Nolans staff drew up the plan, because Nolan was busy with other projects. Nolan asked Baxter to write the booK, which he did.
    The publisher wouldn't PUBLISHit unless Nolan used his name as author and purchased 500 copies in advance. HE DID!
    AND THE BOOK WAS PUBLISHED. ALL THIS FROM THE INTRODUCTION, WHICH NO ONE FROM, VENICE FLA SEEMS TO READ. SO THEY WORSHIP NOLAN AS THE CITY PLANNER AND AUTHOR OF THE BOOK

  • New Towns For Old is a must have for anyone that is interested in building great cities. Nolen's descriptions of the new towns of his time are filled with lessons that can be applied to current practice. Once you read this book, you will want to see these cities.
